Wisconsin lawmakers to investigate ‘disease control’ practices in state health department
— Wisconsin lawmakers will investigate the way the state health agency manages the public health threat posed by the coronavirus, the state’s health commissioner said Wednesday.
“I think we need to make sure that we do not have the coronivirus in our state and we need a proper response,” said Wisconsin State Rep. David Eller, D-Milwaukee.
Eller, who is the director of the Department of Health, said the department is not yet fully operational.
The state has been in lockdown and ordered residents to stay indoors as it continues to quarantine people and isolate them in their homes.
State health officials say they will be releasing more information about the virus as the state tries to contain the outbreak.
Officials are looking for ways to help the public keep themselves safe and keep them healthy.
They also want to know how many people have died in the pandemic.
Eller said the state is considering using drones to monitor the pandoro outbreak and other outbreaks.
